This Instagram Account Will Teach You To Speak Another Language
Make your social media habit more productive and scroll through this feed filled with Japanese flashcards
Memorizing vocabulary can be one of the most challenging parts of learning a new language, and a common way to remember a long list of foreign words is through visual aids and continual repetition. One Instagram account is aiming to make it easier to learn Japanese, a language particularly difficult to master.
Nihongo Flashcards, created by Japanese design studio Pompette, features beautifully illustrated flashcards that make studying the new language more manageable. Each one contains a word in Japanese with its pronunciation and English equivalent. The illustrations are mostly food related and include phrases like ‘gochisousama deshita,’ a saying derived from the custom of giving thanks before and after a meal, as well as facts and information on how the food is prepared.
